Subject: COMMAND PERFORMANCE ep208-Repeat_of_CP_102
there is mention of this item in prior review, however this may be more enlightening:

THEORETICAL DATE: CP_46-01-24_ep208-

ACTUAL 'CAST' AND PIECE IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE:
ACTING MC KEN CARPENTER


POSSIBLE REPEAT, I DO NOT HAVE ALL SHOWS AND CANNOT VERIFY
BENNY GOODMAN, HIS BAND AND QUARTET [INTRODUCED, BUT I DIDN'T HEAR A VOCAL]
'I FOUND A NEW BABY'_


REPEAT FROM EP136
MAXINE SULLIVAN_'MOLLY ALONE'


REPEAT FROM EP174
HOAGY CARMICHAEL_'GEORGIA, ON MY MND', 'NO MORE TOUTJOUR L'AMOUR'. 'HONG KONG BLUES'


REPEAT FROM EP173
LINA ROMAY_'TICO, TICO'


REPEAT FROM EP134
JUDY GARLAND_'I MAY BE WRONG'


REPEAT FROM EP134
JUDY GARLAND_ DANNY KAYE_LAURITZ MELCHIOR_'MODERN TRAVEL'
ORIGINAL "OPERA" BY FIRST TWO TO HONOUR FIRST APPEARANCE OF LATTER ON CP.


KEN CARPENTER'S INTRODUCTIONS EDITED IN [E.G. REPLACING DANNY KAYE'S].

TOTAL TIME 31m07S

SUPPOSEDLY EPISODE 208 IS A REPEAT OF 102.
102 IS NOT SAME SHOW, AS STATED IN PRIOR REVIEW.
208 IS MORE OF A PASTACHE [presuming the word can be applied here] OF ASSORTED REPEATS, BUT NONE FROM EP102, UNLESS I HAVE ERRED.

I SUSPECT THE DATE IS CORRECT, BUT WAS SIMPLY MISLABELED BY ONE DIGIT. BENNY GOODMAN'S NUMBER MAY BE ON AN EARLIER EPISODE, BUT AS I DO NOT HAVE ALL THE EARLIER SHOWS I CANNOT SO VERIFY.

THE SOURCE WAS http://www.archive.org/download/CommandPerformance/CP_46-01-24_ep208-Repeat_of_CP_102.mp3

THANKS TO Jerry Haendiges Vintage Radio Log FOR CP I WAS ABLE TO DO FAST SEARCH IN CP FILES.

AND THANKS TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS FOR MAKING MY EVENINGS THE BEST PART OF MY DAY.

This was actually first brought up be Nightkey in another OTR forum...and I'd like to thank you for the fill on the one that's been driving me nuts trying to get... The both have a 481225 date which does get a bit confusing if you don't know the order of things and you had to sort through six files trying to figure out which part went where...and three of them were mislabled...

I'll have to check for more fills for this great series...
